DOE Report: Power Outage By Cyberattack Threat To Critical Defense Infrastructure

DOE Report: Power Outage By Cyberattack Threat To Critical Defense Infrastructure

ROYAL OAK – The U.S. Department of Energy released an alarming report in January 2017, saying that the U.S. electric grid is in imminent danger from a cyberattack. So where have we been, where are we now, and where are we going regarding smart grid security? Cybersecurity expert Dan Lohrmann discusses the report on this segment of M2 Techcast.

In the department’s landmark Quadrennial Energy Review, it warned that a widespread power outage caused by a cyberattack could undermine ‘critical defense infrastructure’ as well as much of the economy and place at risk the health and safety of millions of citizens. The report comes amid increased concern over cybersecurity risks as U.S. intelligence agencies say Russian hacking was aimed at influencing the 2016 presidential election.”
